The religion blogger at USA Today did exactly that by asking the following question.
Should you be able to vote on who loves whom or how they live together?
Of course, a ban on gay marriage does neither. No government can ban love – and a ban on cohabitation (and even sexual relations) between two adults would fall due to a sting of Supreme Court decisions that include the Lawrence V. Texas sodomy case.
No, the question is whether the institution of marriage, which has been defined in Western society for a couple of millennia as the union of one man and one woman, ought to be redefined to include same sex couples. There are, of course, reasonable public policy arguments to be made either way on the issue – but Cathy Lynn Grossman doesn’t address those in her question which misrepresents the essence of the dispute. Nor does the address why the state ought to be permitted to vote on and regulate relations between minors and adults, siblings, and groups of three or more, denying them legal recognition as marriage. I guess that having done so would not have fit her agenda, any more than an honest presentation of the issue would have.
